EUA’s response to call for ideas for European Innovation Council: Competitiveness and Creation of Jobs

From EUA Newsletter 8 2016.

EUA published its response to the European Commission (EC) call for ideas on “Designing a European Innovation Council” on 29 April 2016.

In order to answer the call, launched in February 2016, EUA held a consultation with its university members and its Research Policy Working Group.
After analysing the results, EUA stresses in its response that the main mission of a European Innovation Council (EIC) should be the enhancement of Europe’s competitiveness and the creation of jobs for the benefit of society.
EUA also stresses that an EIC should take into account the strong relation between investment in research-based innovation, investment in the development of highly-skilled workers and the resulting economic and social innovation.
